Tim will be remembered as a dedicated husband and father to his 8 children, an accomplished musician, and a master of all things roofing, siding, and window. He was a loyal and loving husband to his wife, Renee and an ever-present father to his children – Sean (Katie), Shannon (Kurt), Troy, Teresa (Rory), Christina (Leo), Justin, Blake, and Bryce – whose presence will be sorely missed. Tim’s love for his family was rivaled only by that of his passion for music. An accomplished Bassist, Tim was a founding member of Woodbridge, VA’s musical ensemble “The Cure,” going on to spend more than 50 years as a member of “The Starlights,” and has spent the past 9 years playing with his current group “Whiskey N’ Lace.” He also represented his faith in God through his music by playing the bass in several praise bands in the congregations he has belonged too; including the Restoration Fellowship Church to which he currently belongs. As a young man Tim was a steel worker for Bethlehem Steel and he also worked as a delivery driver; in the end he found his career in the Roofing industry. Tim spent most of his career on the sales side working as both an inside and outside salesman for The Roof Center and then with Morris-Ginsberg, but he ended his career as an estimator for his current company, Loudoun Valley Roofing.
In addition to his wife and children Tim is survived by his Uncle Max Powers; his brothers Jeffrey (Candy) and Michael Powers; his grandchildren Ian, Taylor, Austin, Jackson, Brooke, Maci, Kyla, and Evan; as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews. A celebration of Tim’s life will take place at 1:00 pm on March 16, 2019 at the Restoration Fellowship Church located at 2128 John Marshall Hwy Strasburg, VA 22657. In lieu of flowers the family is asking that donations be made in Tim’s name to Hospice of the Panhandle at 330 Hospice Lane Kearneysville, WV 25430.
